BENSALEM, Pa. (Business Wire) -- Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that it is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of the common stock of DFC Global Corp. (“DFC Global” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:DLLR) concerning possible violations of federal securities laws. The investigation focuses on DFC Global's operations and financial performance between August 29, 2012 and May 12, 2013.

DFC Global, through its subsidiaries, provides retail financial services to unbanked and under-banked consumers and small businesses, primarily unsecured short-term consumer loans, secured pawn lending, check cashing and gold buying.
